Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: From date of randomization until the date of first documented progression or date of death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed up to 3 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity assessed up to 6 years ]
  • Hematologic improvements [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Every 6 months for up to 3 years after first dose ]

    Lymph node response defined as greater than or equal to 50% decrease in the SPD of target lymph nodes

  • Duration of Response (DOR) [ Time Frame: Time from the first documentation of response to first documentation of progressive disease or death due to any cause ]
  • Treatment- emergent adverse events (TEAEs) and changes in safety laboratory values [ Time Frame: 30 days plus 7 days from last dose ]
  • Pharmacokinetics (PK) [ Time Frame: Cycle 2, Cycle 3, and Cycle 7 ]
    Evaluate the PK of IPI-145 and, if applicable, its metabolite(s)

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: IPI-145
IPI-145 is administered orally and supplied as 5 mg and 25 mg formulated capsules
Drug: IPI-145 (duvelisib)

Active Comparator: Ofatumumab
Ofatumumab is administered as an intravenous (IV) infusion and is supplied in single-use vials at two strengths, 100 mg/5mL and 1000 mg/50 mL

Detailed Description:

This is an open-label, two- arm, randomized phase 3, superiority trial designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of IPI-145 compared to ofatumumab administered to patients who have been diagnosed with CLL/SLL whose disease is relapsed or refractory.

Approximately 150 subjects will receive a starting dose of 25 mg IPI-145 BID initially over the course of 21-day treatment cycle followed by 28-day treatment cycles for up to 18 cycles or until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity (whichever comes first). After 18 complete cycles of treatment, subjects may receive additional cycles of duvelisib until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity if they, in the judgment of the Investigator, may derive benefit from continued treatment, and if the subject meets the criteria for additional treatment at Cycle 19 Day 1.

Approximately 150 subjects will receive a starting dose of 300 mg ofatumumab on Day 1 followed by seven weekly doses of 2000 mg. Thereafter, subjects will receive 2000 mg ofatumumab once every month for four months. Administration of ofatumumab will not exceed the 12 doses (within 7 cycles).


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of active CLL or SLL that meets at least one of the IWCLL 2008 criteria for requiring treatment (Binet Stage ≥ B and/or Rai Stage ≥ I)

  • Not appropriate for treatment with a purine-based analogue regimen (per National Comprehensive Cancer Network [NCCN] or European Society for Medical Oncology [ESMO] guidelines), including relapse ≤ 36 months from a purine-based chemoimmunotherapy regimen or relapse ≤ 24 months from a purine-based monotherapy regimen
  • A cytogenetics or fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analysis of the leukemic cells within 24 months of randomization is required to document the presence or absence of del(17p). Note: if a sample from within 24 months is not available, it should be evaluated as part of the screening laboratory evaluation to inform stratification
  • Measurable disease with a lymph node or tumor mass > 1.5 cm in at least one dimension as assessed by computed tomography (CT)
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 to 2 (corresponds to Karnofsky Performance Status [KPS] ≥ 60%)
  • Willingness by subject to be randomized to receive either ofatumumab or duvelisib at the dose and schedule defined in the protocol
  • Must meet the following laboratory parameters:
